A Poem for Friday 5


Poefusion's Friday 5 includes the following words as prompt:

trellis
appearance
defect
youngster
laundry


Monday's Wash

a leggy vine of yellow
the clematis vacates
a peeling-paint trellis,
she supplants the
blooms' appearance
with wet laundry hung
above the dried defect,
her youngster shudders
knows he'll find splinters
in his draping shorts

LOL you're right! That just shows that great minds think alike. ;)

Or gardeners.

Now isn't it just terrible when that happens :-)
I really like this.

very descriptive, too bad about the splinters

Michelle Johnson said...

You and Lenore were certainly on the same wavelength. Great minds...

What adventures one can make out of something simple and once beautiful. But, I think he would have rather not had those splinters. Nice job. Have a nice day.

I love the way the everyday words flow in this poem. Words like clematis, trellis and splinters can conjure up such memories.
